The first possible material for your basin and one of the most used due to its lower purchase cost. It is indeed the most common material, this material is an extract of terracotta which is then heated to a high temperature to harden the material. It has many advantages for a lower cost for the purchase of a basin. It has a pleasant, non-porous texture with a very smooth and pleasant appearance. Ceramic generally has a glossy finish. It can be used in all shapes, whether oval, round or rectangular.
However, ceramic is not known to be the most resistant material, as the slightest impact on it may cause it to crack. Do not expect to find a coloured ceramic basin, as this material is very difficult to dye, so it is rare to find basins in different colours.
Stone is a fashionable material to create a bathroom basin, in fact stone can be presented in two possible ways either as raw stone which will remain natural with minimal work or as synthetic stone which will indicate that the stone has been modified and smoothed. It is a material that is very aesthetic, that will directly add value to your bathroom, it will also be resistant to shocks and thermal changes.
The disadvantage of installing a stone basin is that the basin is often very heavy, so you will need to have a strong enough cabinet to support its weight. As far as maintenance is concerned, stone can only be cleaned with non-abrasive products such as soap and water in order not to damage the material. Finally, the stone basin is quite expensive.
